If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen
Queer Eye’s food and wine expert Antoni Porowski is turning up the heat as Gay Times’ new cover man.
The editorial includes a lot of different looks and hot poses. Antoni posed wearing only his briefs, dressed in overalls that somehow manage to show off his butt and in red shorts.
The handsome food expert uploaded the cover of the magazine on Instagram and wrote:
“To all the boys out there, who, like me, were born with no butt, yet dare to dream for a cover feature, dressed in nothing but loose overalls, I say, never, ever give up.” – We are living for your butt Antoni!
In the photoshoot video below there’s plenty of Antoni working it for the camera, flashing that perfect smile, flexing his muscles and even a very special guest in the form of an adorable corgi!
However, Porowski didn’t just bare his abs. He also bared his soul when it came to talking about the show, its impact and his sexuality.
During his cover interview, Antoni opened up about how being on the show and hanging around with the Fab Five: Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France and Jonathan Van Ness has helped him open up and embrace queer culture and lifestyle.
“When I first started telling people about the show, I would embarrassingly catch myself whispering ‘Queer’ as though… I don’t know if I was embarrassed or I had some kind of shame, but it still felt taboo from childhood.”
“It’s kind of nice because now I say it really confidently. The more you immerse yourself in something, the less precious it gets.”
Antoni loves the attention he gets! When Netflix premiered Queer Eye back in February, Porowski never imagined it would such a success and he would get so much attention.
“I really thought people would be like, ‘Oh that’s nice—they’ve just rebooted that thing that they did way back when,'” he told Gay Times. “I’m very surprised at how big and strong the reaction has been. It’s really been like an explosion of sorts.”
